Do you believe in the Mark of The Beast?
The Mark of The Beast is something the Bible refers to in the book of Revelation 13:16 "It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads."
It tells of a time in the probable near future where nothing will be bought or sold without this ‘marking’. It has long been speculated what it will be. A tattoo? An arm band or head band of sorts. Now it seems modern technology has caught up with Biblical prophecy and we can truly grasp what the mark could potentially look like.
An implantable chip in one’s hand. This chip could interact with your body in the doctor’s office. Scan it, and it could tell your blood pressure, blood sugar, heart rate, or any other vital piece of information of medical history.
Go to the store and scan your hand to pay for groceries. It would be connected to your bank account and the amount deducted. No cash. No credit cards. No more fraud.
How far off is this?
Not very. In fact IBM has been getting the public primed for years.
IBM has been making its living off organized information before the invention of computers. During World War II they leased punch card machines to the Nazis for their concentration camps. These machines had to be serviced on site monthly. They were punch card systems that corresponded to the number tattoos on prisoners arms.
There was an early mention of RFID chips in the original draft of the Affordable Care Act, but it was found out early on and good citizens like you raised their voices and it was removed.
What this tells us is that it is real, and it’s something we need to be on the look out for in the future again.
Be sober. Be vigilant.
